Most people who are released from one of the San Diego jails use the assistance of a San Diego bail bondsman. They pay the bondsman a fee equal to 10% of their total bail amount in order to be released from custody pending their court date.
When someone is released on bond the judge, and/or the bondsman, may impose certain restrictions the defendant must abide by. This may include imposing restrictions on travel, requiring they surrender their passport, and even requiring the defendant submit to mandatory drug and alcohol testing. If at any time the defendant decides to ignore these restrictions, they run the risk of having their bond revoked and can be sent back to jail.
You should know that if San Diego bail bonds are revoked the premium paid to the bondsman is not refunded. If a payment plan had been arranged, the person who signed the contract will still be responsible for resolving the balance. You should also know that if the defendant has been returned to jail, the judge may require a new bond be posted in order to have them released from custody.
